We will drive up on Friday and hopefully get a permit early Saturday morning. Long day on Saturday: hike in to Ireland Lake, drop our packs and climb Parsons. Another long day, Sunday, when we will move damp and climb Lyell. Hike out on Monday. I will have my 12-year-old son Gavin with me. These are the high points of Tuolumne and Mariposa Counties.
